Committees

Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice Committee provides services to returning citizens to have their records sealed (expunged). We agree to call our clients “returning citizens” to help curb the stigma and stereotyping against returning offenders reintegrating into society.

Felony charges can be sealed 3 years after the completion of your sentence, probation, and/or payment of fines and court costs. Misdemeanor charges can be sealed 1 year after the completion of your sentence, probation, and/or payment of fines and court costs.

Health

The Wooster/Orrville NAACP Health Committee, in partnership with the Wayne County Health Department and the YMCA of Wayne County, has taken on the task of trying to promote physical activity and good nutrition for parents and school-aged children.
